You are not prepared for the 2018 BMW M5

It'll have more than 600 horsepower, and an all-wheel-drive system that can send everything to the rear. Good luck.

Cars are Andrew's jam, as is strawberry. After spending years as a regular ol' car fanatic, he started working his way through the echelons of the automotive industry, starting out as social-media director of a small European-focused garage outside of Chicago. From there, he moved to the editorial side, penning several written features in Total 911 Magazine before becoming a full-time auto writer, first for a local Chicago outlet and then for CNET Cars.

It should put out more than 600 horsepower, keeping in line with its competitors.

However, there is a drivetrain mode that completely eliminates the front axle.

So, it manages to be both AWD and RWD, depending on the owner's preference.
